, and president george w. bush only visited during his final months in office. the president, however, is dogged by the perception that he's pulled toward the government of america's strongest ally in the middle east and by the criticism that his outreach to improve relations with the muslim world has been at israel's expense. during an interview on friday with me for "press pass," israel's ambassador to the u.s. sought to downplay any rift. >> there is a u.s./israel relationship which is deep, which is unbreakable, and that's a message of assurance to the people of israel at a very turbulent time in our region and a message to the people of the middle east. >> mr. obama will visit the grave site of theodore hertz el, the father of modern zionism, meant to send a strong signal to the region that this president stands behind israel as its right to exist as jewish state. also on the agenda, a visit to the holocaust memorial and the church of the nativity in bethlehem, a revered site for christians. stay with nbc news for comprehensive coverage of the president's trip starting wednesday. >>> coming

retroactively. and george bush and dick cheney and condoleezza rice are still around. in terms of how we get right with this as a country, the accountability can't just be personal about the decision makers. it has to be about telling the story honestly about what happened so that they, like nixon, don't get away with it in the long run the way they got away with it in the short run, so we tell the story correctly and honestly, so it's not dismissed as a conspiracy theory by generations hence by americans who can't believe something this evil would happen in our country. it did. we need to teach it that way and learn it that way if we want to have any hope of it not happening again. in american politics there were plenty of democrats who went with the iraq war ten years ago, who believed it, and made it more convincing by virtue of their democratic endorsement. on the democratic side that at least as since become a source of shame. it's a strike against you in democratic politics. it's part of the reason we have a president named president obama who was not part of that mess and not hillary
. are going to make george bush the president of the republic now for quite a while, and we will continue that. e really only have 1 1/2 political parties in the country now. there is a misreading of the republican party in terms of what the problems were. the fact of the matter is republican party is the dominant political party from but the party5, ran out of gas in the summer of 2005, the effects of the war, katrina, people say, what is wrong with the republicans? they have had seven or eight years now where republicans are roaming around in terms of their future, and they are not closer now than they were then. the political parties cannot fix the problem of a party, but they have to avoid becoming a liability. the job of the political party is to make a flat playing field, so the future of either party will determine who the nominee is and the next president is. until republicans take the white house back, they will be defined as a congressional party, the tea party, great for us, and whoever is the craziest person gets on tv and gets the attention -- that will not change for the next thr

for the war seems to fall down party lines. 66% of republicans continue to stand by the bush administration's decision to invade, but 73% of democrats say the military campaign was a mistake. i'm joined by retired army colonel and medal of honor recipient jack jacobs. former pennsylvania congressman patrick murphy, first veteran of the iraq war to serve in congress. great to have both of you today. >> great to be with you. >> we've been talking a lot about iraq because of chuck hagel's confirmation and many republicans, we see the polls, they also still believe in this war in spite of the fact we know there were no wmds, in spite of the fact they've discounted certain ties between saddam hussein and al qaeda. i'm wondering, jack, how you think that all of this, the appointment of hagel who was obviously a republican, but who opposed the war, how it all plays into our current state of affairs. >> well, everything is tainted by sequestration, about the loss of funds, lots of ominous views about what'll happen to our defense posture because of cuts should they come in great pro-fusion in the n
the failures of the bush years and so on, that was a red flag and you are seeing the reaction to it. >> bill: okay. but having talked to karl rove many, many times on this program, i can tell you that he is a guy who doesn't want a conservative litmus test to limit some candidates who may be more moderate and appeal to a wider circle. he doesn't want that kind of party where i think sarah palin does want it i think republicans are are going to have to come to grips with that. >> well, they have to decide in some cases whether they're willing to settle for a candidate who has a better chance of win hog may not be as pure on a conservative. >> that's what the romney situation was all about. and romney failed. >> very bold in that. >> they are. but they are congenitally unhappy. i have been covering this stuff for decades now. there are people in the republican party and in the conservative movement who are seldom happy except with certain candidates. if those candidates get nominated and have to go on and make the compromisees that politicians make. they end up enhappy with them as well. this
. >> at the bottom of the hour, ari fleischer the former bush white house press secretary will join us. he co-chaired this rnc project. he helped write this report. >>> president obama expected to announce his pick for labor secretary today. it's thomas perez, the assistant attorney general who heads up the justice department civil rights division. the president also preparing for a visit to israel tomorrow. this will be his first international trip of the second term. the first of his presidency to israel after visiting jerusalem president obama heads to ramallah, and then to amman in jordan. >>> so the ncaa collection committee has spoken. now it is all of our turns to fill out those brackets. while there is no obvious favorite in this year's tournament we do know there will be a new champ because after winning it all last year, kentucky was left out. the top seed in the 68-team torn all right are luisville, gonzaga, indiana and kansas. i've been trying to fill out my bracket all morning. it is not easy. it should be easy for you to beat me and you can compete against all of us here at cnn.
/11, the congress enacted, and then president bush sign into law, the patriot act, and among many other changes to the law it authorized fbi agents, on their own, to serve search warrants or subpoenas on custodians of information. so a telephone company, computer provider. a hospital, lawyer, doctor. having someone else's information. they call that search warrant, which goes around the fourth amendment, which requires that only judges sign search warrants -- they call those search warrants national security letters. so when the fbi comes calling to your or my server, says here's a letter. we want shepard smith's record, they also can't tell anyone because the statute makes it a crime for the recipient of the letters to tell anybody. that's the part that was ruled unconstitutional by the federal judge in california on friday. because that runs up against something called the first amendment, which says, congress shall make no law infringing the freedom of speech. so how could congress make it a crime for people to talk about the government seizing private information without going to judges fir
marriage equality. that's up some 40 points from where it was in 2004, where president bush ran a whole campaign on defaming gay people and passing state initiatives -- >> bill: yeah, to put it in the constitution -- >> that was the strategy to win in those states bring his voters out, vote for him and of course on marriage equality. so those numbers are going up among all groups even conservatives now some 30%. when you see they started at some 14% in 2004 you see growth. you see growth in the 65-plus senior citizens. evangelicals were at about 7% in 2004, now they are in double digits. so support is growing. it's really remarkable and it has to do with what happened last week, at least in part with rob portman. this idea that as society becomes more accepting of gay people and gay people start coming out there is simply no choice for parents, for family members to embrace the people they love, to support who they are, to ensure that they have equality under the law that they can marry who they love just like their straight counterparts. >> bill: isn't there s
. this is interesting for a variety of reasons. first of all, in 2004 when he was the architect for george w. bush, you know, legend has it that rove tried to drive a wedge issue on the issue of same-sex marriage of course coming out against it at that point. now he says the republicans could actually have a candidate who supports it, though, let's put the question to connie mack mary bono mack what do you think? possible? >> well i certainly this issue -- i said this weekend to some friends that it's not a matter of if, it's a matter of when and how. and i think really we're starting to see the debate more about definition. so when you talk about marriage, marriage is a religious institution that i think we ought to protect. and marriage should be between one man and one woman. but i also believe that we ought to afford the same rights and privileges to people who love each other and want to have a family with each other. they ought to be allowed to do that and get all the same rights. >> in california we've had prop 8 which started, people didn't know could they or couldn't they marry their loved one
president bush is we could really not get a handle on a number of civilians, iraqi civilians who were impacted and killed by this war. you have the numbers, the tallies for americans, but not for the iraqi civilians. you speak with this man, i get a sense that every family, every person there is touched or perhaps knows somebody who's been killed. >> yeah. absolutely. i mean, just about everyone who you speak to does. and the other thing too is driving through most parts of the country it's hard to find a neighborhood that hasn't somehow been touched by some sort of a tragedy. the other thing now that you mention that was quite frustrating too about reporting early on is that remember for the longest time the u.s. administration and military were actually denying that the violence was as bad as it was until the numbers became so high, the attacks became so frequent that they couldn't deny it anymore. and now the tally for iraqi casualties ranges from tens of thousands to hundreds of thousands. >> yeah. i think some estimates as high as 600,000. and arwa, your reporting has been extrao
and former governor jeb bush for none other than hillary clinton in 2016. a quinnipiac university poll the other day found floridians would support the former secretary of state and first lady 52-42% over senator rubio and 51-40% over former governor bush. hmm. >>> overwhelming american support for gun background checks. so, why is that not translating into overwhelming support on capitol hill? i'll talk to congressman jim hines next. >>> and great balls of fire. just what was that light that so many folks saw in the sky last night? we will talk about that, too. you're watching msnbc, the place for poll ticks. we're taking downy to the streets. which shirt feels more expensive? that one's softer. it's the same t-shirt. really? this one was washed in downy. why spend a lot of money when you can just use downy? downy's putting our money where our soft is. try downy softness. love it or your money back. has oats that can help lower cholesterol? and it tastes good? sure does! wow. it's the honey, it makes it taste so... well, would you look at the time... what's the rush? be happy. be heal
bridge. >> it was ten years ago when president george w bush announced the start of the u-s lead coalition attack on iraq. the first two tomahawk missiles launched from basra back on march 20th, 2003. for a night of shock and awe. since then. the world witnessed the fall and execution of saddam hussein. with thousands of military, and iraqui families losing loved ones in the war. along with trillions of dollars spent. all echoed in the >> today, many of those war veterans have come back to the u-s. only to find themselves struggling with civilian life. but there is hope. joining us this morning is a bay area marine. mike liguori. he's spent two tours in iraq and now helps veterans with their careers, and writes about veterans issues in his book, the sand box, stories of human spirit and war. welcome. the more you start to realize that the book unfolds. you start to realize that people are actually going to read your darkest secrets. overall it was apelike changing experience for me. it started when i was a sophomore in college. there was a summer where i got bored. i always want
. former adviser to president george w. bush, dan senor. and the reverend al sharpton. >> looking sharp. >> he is double breasted today. boy, he looks good. >> almost double overload. >> wet to that in a second. down in washington, kelly o'donnell. how was the commute coming in this morning? >> it was nasty and truth be told, i have my snow boots on under the desk. >> are they uggs? >> they are. i would kick up my leg but that might be too much for the show. >> we have a lot of to talk about. the basketball team florida gulf coast university. a great story there, the coach there, andy enfield. the first 15 seed to advance to the sweet 16 and playing without fear against georgetown and last night against san diego state and they look like the favorite in both of those games the way they played. >> and enfield is clearly a coach who is a good coach but he doesn't take himself too seriously. the team is playing very light. under very little pressure. they were never expected to be there. he is not overcoaching them and an engaging guy. apparently from everything you read, he has a story fo

would serve my term, i wouldn't leave office mid term. >> jeb bush offered tough love to his party. >> all too often we are associated with being anti-everything. >> neither bush nor palin scored with conservatives for the 2006 race. it was rand paul and marco rubio that took top spots in the cpac straw poll. >> that republican party autopsy one of the things they're putting forward for 2006, limiting primary debates to less than a dozen, moving the convention to late june, mid july. >>> a costly six minutes for defensive end dumervil. he lost his spot on the broncos roster after the contract was faxed six minutes after the 4:00 p.m. deadline. the tardy fax made him a free agent and axed an $8 million contract. as you might expect, he then fired his agent as well. >>> this video is a hit online. officials are investigating this incident caught on camera in surfer's paradise, australia. check out what happens when drunken heck letter pushes the street performer too far. human statue david molder apologized for losing his cool but received support from around the world for letting th
of george w. bush's presidential campaigns. >> i appreciate her encouragement that i ought to go home to texas. i'd be ennewsed if i ran for office to have her support. but i don't think i'm particularly good candidate, sort of a balding fat guy. and second of all, i'd say if i did run for office and win, i'd serve out my term. i wouldn't leave office midterm. >> ouch. our question, in a i'm threat cal match-up, who wins over the republican faithful, karl rove or sarah palin? >> sarah palin. simply because she's just more likeable. you may think she's an idiot, you may think she has no idea what she's talking about, but there is something about her charisma that attracts a large number of people and causes people to want to listen to her and be attracted to her. karl rove is right. he does not have that appeal. and worse yet is that he has a lot of egg on his face from 2012 including the meltdown in ohio. so if you go past the last victories, last thing we saw from karl rove was a total melt dunn. >> he's right, it's sarah palin. karl rove seems to know his place and he knows it's beh
